WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) today announced its latest sale of non-performing loans, including the company's ninth and tenth Community Impact Pools. Community Impact Pools are typically smaller pools of loans that are geographically-focused, and marketed to encourage participation by non-profit organizations, minority- and women-owned businesses (MWOBs), and smaller investors.
The four larger pools include approximately 7,900 loans totaling $1.29 billion in unpaid principal balance (UPB) and the Community Impact Pools of approximately 700 loans totaling $129.58 million in UPB. The Community Impact Pools will consist of a larger geographically disperse pool, as well as a smaller pool focused in the New York City area. All pools are available for purchase by qualified bidders. This sale of non-performing loans is being marketed in collaboration with Bank of America Merrill Lynch and First Financial Network, Inc., as advisors.
Bids are due on the four larger pools on November 2 and on the Community Impact Pools on November 15.
Among other elements, terms of Fannie Mae’s non-performing loan transactions require the buyer of the non-performing loans to pursue loss mitigation options that are sustainable for borrowers. In the event a foreclosure cannot be prevented, the owner of the loan must market the property to owner-occupants and non-profits exclusively before offering it to investors, similar to Fannie Mae’s FirstLook® program.
Interested bidders are invited to register for future announcements, training and other information at http://www.fanniemae.com/portal/funding-the-market/npl/index.html. Fannie Mae will also post information about specific pools available for purchase on that page.
